Oh for humidity and the smell of fresh cut grass

Ok....I know it is only January, I know in Australia it is summer right now, I know in Florida it may be in the 60's, But how about the Midwest?  I woke up, looked outside and went back to sleep to dream of the late afternoon last summer when I watched the free spirits of youth swinging on the perfect tree, with the musty smell of cut grass at the end of an 85 degree day.

I have never wanted to travel into the future to see what is in store but I long to travel to the past....reliving the best moments of my life.  I guess I just have a hard time dealing with reality.  High of 16, not a color out my window other than brown.

What a perfect golden afternoon scene, Dan. Love the warm glow and softness of the scene you captured.

I am ready for the extreme temps to go away....it's crazy cold, here in Vermont. Your photo makes me want to bask in that sunshine.

Sitting in the shade in the front garden, temperature in the mid 30s (c), beer-wise weather.

Mrs N would kill for a swing like that, btw.

J....you are killing me....what I wouldn't give for some "beer-wise" weather! And yes, Mrs. N. would have the perfect swing and the perfect tree. That tree by the way is in danger of dying. It has some type of disease that is causing the branches to break off...a few of the big long branches have supporting wires on them.
